IPL 2020: How the youngsters faired

Published Date:

The razzmatazz Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 hosted in Dubai due to the global pandemic COVID-19, did not fail to thrill the cricket fans across the globe. While the established behemoths like Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma among others, continued to embellish the tournament, IPL has always been a grand stage for the youngsters to show off their artillery.

From Kolkata Knight Rider’s mystery spinner to Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Devdutt Padikkal, the 13th edition of the exhilarating tournament witnessed some spellbinding feats.

Let’s take a gasp and explore the future prospects of the gentleman’s game.

1. Devdutt Padikkal:

The 20-year-old Karnataka southpaw put up a scintillating show in this year’s IPL while opening for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Replacing the likes of Parthiv Patel, Virat Kohli, the Keralite accumulated 422 runs at an average of 32.46. Debuting in 2020, Padikkal struck four half centuries. With a strike rate of 127.11, he lit up Dubai with his consistent performance.

2. Ruturaj Gaikwad:

Donning the yellow outfit of Chennai Super Kings Gaikwad came into the scene much later in IPL 2020. While the MS Dhoni led CSK failed to impress in this edition of the tournament, Gaikwad’s rise was more dramatic. Kicking of his account with two ducks in three innings, the Maharashtra batsman came back strongly to deposit 204 runs in 6 games averaging at 51.0. His highest score of 72 came against the Kolkata Knight Riders where he anchored his team to a victory.

3. Varun Chakravarthy:

The mystery sinner has worked wonders for the Kolkata Knight Riders this season. Rising from Tamil Nadu Premier League and a bowling action resembling Sri Lankan spinner, Ajanta Mendis. Chakravarthy has scalped MS Dhoni twice in this year’s IPL. The wrist spinner has been a menace as he picked up 17 wickets in 13 games. The Tamil Nadu leggie has also got a call up for the Indian National Team for the upcoming Australia series.

4. Arshdeep Singh:

The Kings Eleven Punjab pacer may have not featured consistently for the KL Rahul led side but has impressed with his figures of 9 wickets in 8 games. Singh’s strength has been his control over the ball, and rarely has the 21-year-old faltered with his lines and lengths. Slower deliveries have been the seamer’s go-to attack in the death overs and his accuracy has been rewarded with nine wickets in eight outings.

5. Kartik Tyagi:

The 19-year old fast bowler made his debut in the IPL this year playing for Rajasthan Royals. Tyagi made a mark for India in the U19 World Cup in South Africa and has been in a scorching form for RR. With 9 wickets from 10 matches in his bag, the teenager has overshadowed more senior Rajasthan pacers like Jaydev Unadkat, Varun Aaron and Ankit Rajpoot.
